Lion TV Scotland are delighted to announce a new commission, Virtually Home, for BBC Daytime.

Virtually Home is a 15 x 45 minute series, exploring the cutting edge, interior design world and featuring people stuck in a design rut. The show will use virtual reality (VR) to help people with modest budgets avoid making expensive interior design mistakes. The series will showcase a diverse variety of projects across the UK, and will allow the contributors to truly visualise their dream designs in spectacular VR, before implementing them in actual reality.

The series will feature four of the UK’s leading interior designers – Karen Livingstone Welstead who lives in Glasgow, Russell Sage based in Somerset, Kunal Trehan in Cheshire and Simon Hamilton from London. Each will be matched with members of the public who either have different styles and ideas for a room make over from each other or are conflicted themselves with which way to turn.

Each episode will see the designers offer up two distinct VR designs from the Edinburgh based studio. Once the contributor decides which design they will go ahead with, they will capture the progress of the makeover in video diaries until the result is revealed to the designer at the end of the episode.

Virtually Home is a Lion TV production for BBC One, and will be produced in Scotland. The Executive Producer is Lisa Hazlehurst and the Series Producer is Mat Marsters. The Commissioning Editor is Muslim Alim for BBC Daytime.
